"I talked to all of [the officials], and they said, look, they all agreed on the call and so did the replay [official]," Franklin said. "They all agreed. I kept bringing them over and saying, 'It's not accurate.' I don't know what else I can tell them, but they all concurred, all the officials, they got on the headset, they talked to each other, and they all agreed. They ran it by replay, and they all agreed as well. I don't know what else I can do or say."
